Parkland Student Activist: I Deleted My Tweet ‘Because My Team Asked Me To’

Published

on

North Broward Prepatory School senior Emilie Smith, who has become a face of the gun-control push despite not even going to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, revealed that her “team” has jurisdiction over her tweets.

Smith, who has been featured by MTV News, made the bombshell revelation in a back-and-forth with pro-gun Parkland survivor Kyle Kashuv.

Big League Politics’ Peter D’Abrosca reported:

A Sunday night Twitter post by David Hogg casts doubt that his Twitter account is actively managed by the student, and instead creates speculation that his liberal activist mother runs the page. The post tags Facebook, requesting they remove a fake account in his name, but the account that is shown logged in on Facebook in the top right corner is of his mother, Rebecca Boldrick.

The Tweet has been deleted, but Big League Politics has an exclusive screenshot of the Tweet.

Big League Politics broke the story showing that Hogg’s mother was a CNN VIP and vocal anti-Trump activist. Now it appears likely that Hogg’s mother has a much larger influence over the actions of the gun control activist’s public presence.

This also opens up the question of whether or not Boldrick is simply using her son’s newfound fame to promote her liberal agenda. The Twitter account, that now has over 400,000 followers has posted many non gun-related political Tweets in the past weeks.

During the union-led school strikes in West Virginia, Hogg posted a Tweet in support of the walkouts, which seemed odd for a High School Senior in Florida to have much of an opinion of.

eBay BANS Six Dr. Seuss Books That Will No Longer Be Published Due to “Racist Images”

This is getting completely out of hand.

Published

The hysteria continues: eBay has banned the reselling of six Dr. Seuss books that will no longer be published due to “racist imagery,” saying that these listings now violate their policies.

eBay had emailed people who put the books up for sale early Thursday morning. With a subject line titled “Your listing was removed: Offensive material policy,” eBay’s email reads as follows:

We had to remove your listing because it didn’t follow our Offensive material policy. Listings that promote or glorify hatred, violence, or discrimination aren’t allowed.

Dr. Seuss Enterprises has stopped publication of this book due to its negative portrayal of some ethnicities. As a courtesy, we have ended your item and refunded your selling fees, and as long as you do not relist the item, there will be no negative impact to your account. Please review our Offensive Materials Policy prohibits this item for more information [sic].

The six books that Dr. Seuss Enterprises said they would no longer publish include And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, If I Ran the Zoo, McElligot’s Pool, On Beyond Zebra!, Scrambled Eggs Super!, and The Cat’s Quizzer.

Big League Politics reported Tuesday that a school district in northern Virginia stopped celebrating Dr. Seuss on Read Across America Day because of the “racial undertones” of such books. Although the district said they would not ban Dr. Seuss books from their libraries and classrooms, there’s no doubt they’ll consider removing the six books now considered irredeemably racist.

eBay is probably the first domino to fall. Expect Amazon and others to follow suit.
